Exclamation How to Odin and Galexo ROMís


Here is a link for another guide about Odin, thanks to Bomberman for the link.

Most of the Below information has been taken from this forum so I would like to thank kam187 and Rastaman-FB for providing the majority of this information, drakaz for supplying the ROM’s, and everybody else here for being so bloody helpful I have only written this to put it all together in one place, so if this works and like it (you will) register and thank these lovely people on the forum for helping you to do this.


I have now done this several times and a few have not worked first time around and sometimes I needed to start from scratch again as it did not work, so if you’re short of time come back when you have more.

#######If you flash your phone you may void your warranty, do this at your own risk, myself or anybody here cannot be held responsible if the information below is incorrect or causes damage to your phone, i suggest you read it all in full and make sure you know what you are doing. if you are unsure or unwilling to take the risks leave it and do not go further as nobody wants a £450+ paper weight. #######



How to Install Drivers (ex ADB)

First things first, you will need to install the Samsung drivers for your device if you are using Windows 7 (or probably Windows Vista (God Forbid)) all you need to do is plug in phone to the USB port, mount the Drive by dragging the top bar down and selecting mount.

Then go to Settings >> Applications >> Development and select USB Debugging and them mount the drive again.

If you have problems install Samsungs latest PC Suite from http://www.samsungmobile.co.uk/support/softwaremanuals/software.do
Select the device it will be called Samsung Galaxy, Samsung –i7500 or maybe even Samsung GT-i7500, the naming convention used is inconsistent so it depends on what time of day it is or something like that.

If problems still remain or you run 64x look http://androidforums.com/samsung-i7500/8801-using-i7500-x64-computer-drivers.html

If all you want to do is update firmware via Odin you can stop there for the ROMS there is another driver you need but see below for that.



How to get Odin

So now to get Odin, download from: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=MKZTVVQ0
and extract them.
Then you need the latest firmware so choose one from the folowing list (the lower the newer)

I7500XXII4 (original O2 Firmware with CSC) MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

I7500XXIH8 http://www.megaupload.com/?d=GUJMVOWQ
I7500XXII5 http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3IZ1GVPE
You need to extract the .tar files from the downoaded .zip.

Once you have all the files you need, start the phone in download mode by pressing Volume Down >> OK >> and Power On

The phone should boot to download mode, then plug in the USB again and open Odin, then select:

-One package from the options tick Boxes
-Select the file path for OPS which is the Orion.ops file
-Select the file path for One Package which is the firmware .Tar file

Press start the phone will reboot once done, you must then factory reset by going, Settings >> SD card & Phone Storage >> Factory data reset

That’s it! Done.



ADB Driver

This is to install the ADB Driver and Galexo ROM’s AFTER you have flashed to II5 from above directions

First to get the required tools file for this go to http://www.megaupload.com/?d=48D1QMWX

Then you need to install the adb driver so enable debugging, Settings >> Applications >> Development and select USB Debugging :
Right click My Computer >> Properties >> Device Manager then you should see an unknown device that did not install when we plugged in the phone previously, this driver is located in the tools file you just downloaded under USB_Driver

So right click unknown device and update driver software, you must choose browse my computer for software >> Let me pick from a list of drivers >> next >> have disk then browse to the file which is \tools\usb_driver\x86
It may not be exactly the above it depends on your OS so keep searching for the have disk option.



Installing Recovery Image And Galexo ROM's

With the phone plugged in via USB and the phone off go to command prompt by typing in cmd in search or run box in windows and cd to the tools directory then

Type: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
It will say... < Waiting for device >
Long-press the two Call buttons on the phone and you will see it load in fast boot and confirm file transfer was successful.

The new recovery image will be flashed,

You need to get the relevant Galexo ROM you want from hdblog.it http://forum.hdblog.it/showthread.php?t=4842
you will need to register to get the text file with the link to the Galexo update.zip files (bottom of his post)

Mount the SD on your PC and copy the rectools.tar.gz (from tools folder) and update.zip(from hdblog) to your root directory on the sdcard by just dragging and dropping the files in via my computer

Boot into recovery (VOL DOWN >> CALL >> END CALL) and do a G.apps backup. It should take 10 to 12 seconds. Anything like 1 or 2 seconds means it failed - reboot into recovery and go again

- Wipe in recovery, it'll reboot into recovery when done
- Apply sdcard:update.zip it'll reboot into recovery when done
- restore g.apps (if this keeps failing then mount the SD card and format it on your PC)
- reboot


If the phone seems to get stuck on the android screen on boot, be patient and wait for at least 10 minutes, but it has got stuck for me before and I have had to just pull the battery out and restart, it will take a while on first boot.



Removing unwanted files

The next parts are not necessary but can help free memory

On the phone go to settings >> Applications >> Development unselect then select USB debugging so it is ticked, this will install any missing drivers. I don’t know why this needed to be done but it did for me.

Cd to the tools directory from the command line with the phone turned on as normal

- adb remount
- adb push clearapps.sh /system/clearapps.sh
(you can edit clearapps.sh if you want to keep the widgets or any other apps you may want I suggest you look at it before running the file, just open it with notepad)

Anything after // are comments if you didn’t know

Then run the following commands:

- adb shell // Opens the Shell
- chmod +x /system/clearapps.sh // edits permissions
- /system/clearapps.sh // runs clearapps.sh to remove unnecessary apps
- cd /data/dalvik-cache
- rm * // Clear all in cache
- reboot

I agree with you spotty. I have been reluctant to install Galaxo or any other custom rom because the instructions were over my head and assumed I knew things I didn't already or nonexistent. Thank you for providing this thread.

I'm having some problems. I'm running 64-bit Windows 7 and i've installed the drivers from the link you gave which worked fine. For the ADB driver, i browsed to the file in \tools\usb_driver\amd64 and then i'm givin a list of models. I chose ADB Testing Interface, is that correct? Because on the recovery image part it says < Waiting for device > but when i load my phone in fast boot nothing is transferred..

Have you looked here? Using i7500 with x64 Computer (Drivers)
Sounds what you have done is correct, i suggest having device manager open when you put the phone in fast boot and if there is a missing driver it should come up and at least state which one you are missing.

If all else fails install Samsung NPS from the link above in original post

Right, im having issues at the first part:

If all you want to do is update firmware via Odin you can stop there for the ROMS there is another driver you need but see below for that.

When i mount in debuging mode, XP picks up the phone and launched the New HArdware Wizard, but cant do it automatically, and i dont have any driver files to point it to. Simultaneously, NPS launches with a GT-i7500 icon which when i click on, pops up a "device not supprted" notification. What am i doing wrong??

1.)
Odin nor NPS offer a back up,

You cant really back up you phone, you alredy have your contacts calender and emails backed up with google if you are using the google sync.

You apps will all be deleted however if you go on to My Downloads from the market as soon as you start with your new firmware it will keep a list of prevoisly installed apps (download them all at once)


2.)
If you were just to flash using Odin to II5 you phone would not be rooted,
If you were to go to the GalexyHero ROM it would be,


3.)
ADB (Android Debug Bridge) is a tool that comes with the Android SDK that allows you to control and interface with your Android device

ADB is not necessary to flash to II5

4.)
Its difficult to say i have flashed and reflashed my phone on many occasions and when i did run in to problems it was easly fixed by re-flashing the phone again, what i have read from other forums is that if the phone was to loose power during flashing a certain file it may brick the phone. it suggests having at least 30% battery.

NPS says that if you have the most up to date firmware, it is useless, all it can be used for is updating firmware you canít actually use any of the other functions, that would be to simple haha,

Not having XP installed makes it difficult if you have installed NPS I would suggest you probably have all the necessary drivers needed.

It sounds as if it is the ADB driver not installed which is what tries to install when debugging is turned on, itís not necessary really if your just using Odin,
If you are going to use one of the ROMís you will need it the ADB driver it is mentioned later down the post

Not sure if this helps, get back to me if not.

Yep, all good now. So i did that and the phone rebooted. On checking my firmware version it says that ii5 is the firmware - do i still need to do a factory reset as per the instructions?

New problem! I can't do this bit:

The hardware installation wizard always pops up. When i say "dont search, i will choose the driver to install", i get to the choose manufacturer and model screen, where the phone obv isnt shown, so i just leave it and click "have disk" straight away, go to the file, and then it says "the specified location does not contain information about your device". So i'm a bit stuck
ADB Driver


So right click unknown device and update driver software, you must choose browse my computer for software >> Let me pick from a list of drivers >> next >> have disk then browse to the file which is \tools\usb_driver\x86
It may not be exactly the above it depends on your OS so keep searching for the have disk option.

How long does the recovery boot take - iv got a screen with an exclamation mark and the phone beside it...

edit: i was going to take the battery out and when i turned it back over for one last look at the screen it was doing a normal boot..I can't figure this bit out. Please can you explain it a bit?

Boot into recovery (VOL DOWN >> CALL >> END CALL) and do a G.apps backup. It should take 10 to 12 seconds. Anything like 1 or 2 seconds means it failed - reboot into recovery and go again

- Wipe in recovery, it'll reboot into recovery when done
- Apply sdcard:update.zip it'll reboot into recovery when done
- restore g.apps (if this keeps failing then mount the SD card and format it on your PC)
- reboot

Ye my command prompt never left "waiting for device". Maybe the transfer didnt happen properly. Ill try that again, thanks.

Edit: im getting a "found new hardware" notification saying found "android 1.0". What's going on there?? Thing is i think i did the adb driver correctly - the computer recognises the debugging mode when mounted and sees the phone as a removable disk.

you need to install adb driver again for fastboot, its a nightmare as you have to do it within 15 seconds and point it to the adb driver

Sorry again mate, I have now updated the post to be correct so if you download the tools folder again.

Now you need to uninstall the incorrect driver so just go to device manager, right click and uninstall SAMSUNG GALAXY Composite ADB Interface,
You get the option to delete it as well so you may as well as it is no good

re read what im saying
fast boot is a seperate driver but you can use the adb driver for it.
its asking for 1.0 as its another driver type but it can use the same adb driver to run

Trying to update the driver it says it couldnt find a newer version than the one i have installed. On opening the inf file with notepad i noticed: DriverVer=06/25/2009,1.0.0010.00001 does that means that's android 1.0? Should i try 1.5 from android sdk?

edit: on deleting opld driver and re-installing the new one, the found new hardware notification doesnt come up, but command prompt stays on waiting on device, and the phone just ends up booting normally after the 15secs or so. I might give up for the night and try again tomorrow!

Ok, well for a fresh start in the morning I reconstructed what you explained and I had what you explained the android 1.0 etc,

When I uninstalled the incorrect driver I then toggled USB debugging off/on and “Unknown Device” appeared again in device manager then I updated to the correct driver,


Sorry i did not reply sooner i dont get emails for edits,

No unfortunately cmd never seems to get past "waiting for device" and fast boot then just boots normally. And i definately have the correct driver installed too.

To see if adb is working then connect the device with debugging on then open a command prompt cd to the tools directory and run: adb devices

This will list the device if it is connected properly

i would also have device manager open when you are starting in fastboot to see if you can see the driver that needs updating

Yes! Ok, so adb was working and detecting the phone fine, but the fastboot driver wasnt there. Successfully flashed that now so going to continue on here..

Default galexo hangs on boot screen

thanks so much for the instructions. it was a smooth install. I picked the IH8 rom and then decided to move to galexo. It hangs on the boot screen for ever. Should i move to II5 first before installing galexo?

Yep, you need ii5. I was on ih8 too and changed to ii5 first. Galaxhero (from what i understand) is built to work on ii5, so id say that's your problem.

Thanks! This worked seemed to work perfectly (installing Galaxo from 64-bit Vista) but Superuser (and VPN that relies on it) doesn't seem to work. It just hangs. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks again to everyone involved, here and on HDBlog.it!

Default it works...

perfect. It works. I think it is best to explicitly state this in the instructions. Thank you all for you help and thanks to GalexoHero folks for the best customization on android.

cheers.

Hi All ,
I am trying to install galexo but I am stuck on apply sdcard: update.zip .
Get E:Can't open /sdcard/update.zip(No such file or directory) I can see the file on the sd card so is it ok to use the command "Apply any zip from sd" ? thanks

no

when it says sdcard its meaning the root location of your internal galaxy memory
not an aftermarket sdcard.

the reason for this is because the galaxy has 8gig internal sdcard and it refers to the mountable sections as /sdcard

i think you must be putting it on you additional microsd card

Hi Rastaman,
Sorry I went to bed before I saw your reply, ok for the no , and yes I do realise it is the internal card, have been reading, rereading all the posts on rooting for a while so as not to have to trouble you with questions. I did not find root location on the internal sdcard so I created a root diretory file and put the update zip in there (obviosly not right). Could it be that windows vista is hidding the file on the sdcard and that is why I can not see it .I know I saw it there using "astro" on the phone.

when you open up the internal card on the pc its the defaut place it opens, you do not need to create any folder

if for example it opens k: the you would put update.zip in K: so it would read in windows k:\update.zip and you would do the same for ii5

I have noticed there is no G.apps backup on the V0.4.2 could this be the problem ,should I follow Drakaz's instructions or do I just skip G apps backup and continue with your instructions. Sorry thourght I had it all under control before starting but am now a little confused

on another note. in vista do the following
go to folder options > view > hide extentions for known file types. untick it
make sure its not saying update.zip.zip

This guide is missing a very important point - how to backup the original recovery image? Or is it restored if I flash back the original O2 II4 firmware?
